'Design and Violence is an era-defining design tome that should be essential reading for those interested in fields as diverse as journalism and art and design to science, law, finance and criminal justice' - Wallpaper

A fascinating book exploring the relationship between design and violence

Published to accompany an online experiment launched by The Museum of Modern Art in 2013, this lively book brings together controversial, provocative, and compelling design projects with leading voices from the fields of art and design, science, law, criminal justice, ethics, finance, journalism, and social justice. Each author responds to one object—ranging from an AK-47 to the Stuxnet digital virus—sparking dialogue, reflection, and debate. 

Themes explored in the book include: Can we design a violent act to be more humane? How far can the state go to protect its borders from immigration before it becomes an act of violence? and is violence 'male'?
